    Default Am I just difficult?

    I am looking at buying a quick pitch shower cubicle.
    The one that is on the side of your bakkie or van and when opened rolls down and folds open.
    Now I had a look at a couple of them.
    Why are the drop sides on all of them just 1.8m.
    Yes with some you can adjust the drop but when lowering your head will stick out and when lifting your feet will stick out.
    Is it just me that feels better when all of me is tucked away behind the dropside.

    May be you prefer not to be seen. In my case anyone can see my head or my feet

    I have a QuickPitch. When showering I stand in a large flat bowl (the one we had when catching our shower water during our water shortage). It is about 150mm high, so a bit more privacy for you. Shows how much water has been used and saves standing in mud.

    Everything is a hammer.

    Then it it a chisel.

    I have one fitted to my caravan

    It is roughly 1.8m high and drops all the way to the ground,

    You can also peg it down.
    I am 1.83m tall and I can just see over the top of the sheeting, but the structure is as high as my head.
    So you can hang your towel over it to hide behind.

    Unless you are 6.6, I do not foresee anyone seeing your feet, or your jaw..

    You also do not obviously have the shower facing the "open side" of your camp setup.

    I will take some photos

    If your head sticks out the top you can shower with a view AND look who's looking at you
